The series, Profiles from the Front Line, is from Warner Bros. TV and
producers Jerry Bruckheimer (Black Hawk Down) and Bertram van Munster
(The Amazing Race).

ABC has given a 13-episode commitment to Front Line, which could be
ready for primetime by this summer.

The Department of Defense and Pentagon have given their blessings to the
project and will be involved from the outset, ABC executives said.

and the men and women involved in the daily trials and tribulations on the front
line against terrorism,' Bruckheimer said.
